Hi All

Whilst researching Tim Needham's post on Edmond Breville Skottowe: Unrecorded surviver of Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift Defender, Fri, June 16, 2024 , 11:28pm. I came across the following:

King William's College Register, 1833-1904, I.O.M (old boys published in 1905)

I found Edmond Breville Skottowe, left the college midsummer 1852..
Also:
William Richard Skottowe, born Nov 1848, left midsummer 1862.

On looking at the register I decided to see who else was listed and found the following:
Robert Clarke Savage, b Aug 17th 1841, left Feb 1857. Son of Rev R C Savage, Nuneaton vicarage, Warwickshire.
Went to sea. Served in Bakers Light Horse in the Zulu war 1879; died of wounds received during the war. Died April 27th 1885 at Sydney NSW.
This, if correct, says that he died of his wounds received in the war, six years after the battle. Where was this?

Alfred William Adcock, b Dec 23rd 1832, left college midsummer 1850. Son of W R Adcock, Shepperton.
24th regiment 1872. Lieut- Col i6tb regt 1879, Major General 1894, died May 6th 1900.
The spelling of the unknown regt is their printing of it, not mine. Was there a A W Adcock in the Zulu war?

Hi All

Also listed in the King William's College Register is the following:

Lascelles Warton Ford, b Nov 4th 1845, left college midsummer 1864. Son of Major General Bamett Ford, India.
Ensign 88th Connaught Rangers 1865, lieut 1869, Capt 1871. Died January 27th 1883, in London.
I know it's a long shot but, did he serve in the Zulu war four years before he died, or did he retire in 1871?

Also:

Henry Comish b April 8th 1842, left college summer 1859. Son of Dr Comish, Taunton MRCS.
Assistant Surgeon RAMC 1866 (written in 1905) Surgeon 1873, Surg-Major 1878, Died in 1881 of wounds received at Majuba Hill.
I acknowledge his death does not relate to the Zulu war but, is it possible he may have been there two years before?

Henry Cornish was a decorated war hero, serving with the British army as a Major Surgeon in the Afghan War, before fighting at the second Boer War at Majuba Hill (1881) where he was mortally wounded rescuing a fellow wounded soldier.

Hi 1879graves

Thank you, just wondered if he was active in the Zulu war, and obviously not.

Cheers Eddie

I found a Trooper R.Savage in Baker's Horse , couldn't find any mention of him being Wounded , every possibility if he was wounded it was probably at one of the following places ...Hlobane , Kambula , Erzungayan Mtn or Ulundi ( Adj Frith 17th Lcrs was Killed at Erzungayan Mtn ) , I seem to recall Baker's Horse were out with Buller on other Patrols etc , some were also present July 3rd when Buller and his force were very nearly ambushed , whilst looking for a place for Chelmsford's force to advance on July 4th ( Ulundi ).

Details of Robert Clarke Savage appear on his father’s gravestone, see https://www.ourwarwickshire.org.uk/content/article/mystery-nuneatons-african-chiefs-part-two

An interesting story that links the Savage family to Southern Africa, but no mention of the Zulu War.

Captain Lascelles Wharton Ford, 88th (Connaught Rangers) Regiment, did not serve in the 9th Cape Frontier War or the Zulu Campaign.  He retired to Half-Pay on 17th May 1879.

It is feasible that he served at No. 68th Brigade’s Depot in Galway.

Hi All

Thank you 90th, John

I just wondered how Savage must have suffered for the last few years of his life.
In his school report above it states he went to sea, this could imply that he traveled to a location or that he actually worked on ships or in the Marines, I wonder.

I have come across a page from the Army List of Deaths that includes Alfred William Adcock, and it lists him as Major General in the Bedfordshire Regiment. This is obviously at the end of his career but, it states above that he was initially in the 24th.

Captain Alfred William Adcock transferred from the 24th Regiment to the 16th Regiment on 22nd December 1863.

He did not serve in the Zulu War of 1879. As of 31st December 1878, he is shown as a Major in the 1st Battalion, 16th (Bedfordshire) Regiment serving in Cork, Ireland.

No mention in Hart’s Army List, 1879 of any active service.
